    I am very excited to let you know about an opportunity for Arcola Orchestra and String Ensemble!  Air Force Strings, an internationally known, world class string orchestra will be coming to work with Arcola orchestra students from Tuesday, March 28 through Friday, March 31, 2017.  They will work with students during regular lessons on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.  

     

    They will perform with the String Ensemble at Shannondell on Wednesday evening, March 29, 2017, then perform with the full orchestra for the Friday evening, March 31st concert.  What an amazing experience this is for the orchestra students (and the director)!!  We will also be combining with Penndale Middle School Orchestra from North Penn for the Friday evening concert.
